Yes , Julie from Craftwork Cards, is coming to Bury St Edmunds on Saturday 5th March to ‘Your Touch of Craft’ on Risbygate Street to do a demo from 10am til 1pm. She is also doing a workshop which I have been lucky enough to get a place on – unfortunately it is now full but the demo should be good and there is no booking for that. Craftwork cards new collections are in the shop now and I am really liking the Botanical collection and their cute bunny called ‘Warren’. I’m not really one for cute images but he is lovely.
So I have been lucky this week going to two workshops. The one on Wednesday taken by the lovely Suezie had us making a box of cards and toppers to give away. Suezie used some lovely Bo Bunny papers and although I haven’t quite got around to photographing my efforts you can see the complete box here. Suezie is crafting with a bit of a health problem at the moment but she is managing to produce some super stuff as always. Read all about it and see her creations here.
Lastly as I have no cards to show at the moment – they are all waiting for approval by the lady who has commissioned them – I will show you a very simple card I made for our Ruby Wedding invites 18 months ago. I had never actually got around to photographing this card and had to ask my ES for his so I could take a photo to finish off the album.
We made a sudden decision to do something for our 40th Anniversary and I had to produce 50 invites in double-quick time. I used small squares of card which I had torn with a ruler, layered with some hand-made paper and a peel off sentiment. The edges were all inked with Versa Colour Peony and the ink pad was swiped over the peel off before that was lifted to give a relief effect. I printed off the invite on the computer again tore with the ruler and inked the edges. All quickly done in a week. Quite an achievement at the time as I was still working full-time! I don’t do quick at the best of times even now.
